The Patterns of War since the Eighteenth. by Larry H. Addington.
The Patterns of War through the Eighteenth Century. 0253208602 (ISBN13: 9780253208606). Addington's book is a great introduction to the overarching patterns of warfare from the dawn of history until the Napoleonic Wars. It is a short, quick, and well-paced read that will hold the attention of readers new to military history. If I were to make one criticism, it would be that for readers more familiar with military history it is heavy on narrative and light on analysis. I would have liked to have seen less narrative and more discussion of the patterns that Addington identifies
The patterns of war after World War II emerged against a background of several historic developments. The first was the continuing technological revolution in the twentieth century, especially as regards nuclear explosives, their carriers, precision-guided munitions of all kinds, and electronics. The second was four decades of Cold War between the United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics, a rivalry compounded by the tendency of many countries to align themselves with one or the other of the two superpowers in opposing blocs.
